The Top 3 Tips for Selecting a Garage Door Color, North Ridgeville, Ohio

If you are replacing your garage door, you do not need to choose one that's the same color as your old door. In fact, you have several options. Ask yourself if you wish your home to blend in with your neighbors' or if you'd rather make a color statement. That's the first step. The information below will help you move on from there.

3 Suggestions for Choosing the Right Garage Door Color for Your Home

1. Choose Based on Popularity

If you're interested in an attractive color that doesn't stand out, choose one of the popular colors. For garage doors, the most common shades are white, gray, black, beige, and dark brown. They are largely neutral colors because the garage door is not normally the most impressive or eye-catching feature of a home. Moreover, these colors work well with most shades of house paint.

2. Choose a Complementary Color

Garage doors in North Ridgeville, OHA garage door need not be the precise color as the rest of the house. In fact, you might find that it results in too much of the same color. Think of your garage door as part of the house's trim; a slightly different, yet complementary color breaks up the lines of the house a bit and adds visual interest. For instance, if the house's exterior is off-white, consider a door that's sandstone, almond, or another shade of tan. If the house's siding is darker—such as blue or green—consider a shade of gray that captures some of the siding's cooler notes.

3. Choose a Contrasting Color

On the other hand, if you want to make more of a visual statement, a contrasting color will accomplish that without making the house an eyesore. For instance, if the house and trim are dark, consider a white or off-white garage door. If the house is light-colored, try a dark brown or even black door. The contrast will create visual drama without you having to resort to a shocking color, like red or purple.
